From the 1988 Public Enemy hit "Don't Believe The Hype", which was created to fight back against negative press about the group. Specifically, Public Enemy's quest to create a platform for empowerment in valuing diverse and inclusive narratives across society. Thus, the DCCC Graduate Research Think Tank, has created a session designed to discuss, encourage, and promote diverse and inclusive scholarship. The DCCC will provide an open opportunity for Graduates to engage with scholars who have established careers in the arena of diverse and inclusive works, who will offer advice and evaluation of Graduate Student research pursuits of diverse and inclusive scholarship.
